    I know it takes a lot of effort etc to run a web site, but i prefer the old site i could see exactly which threads had new postings in.

    Also i might be wrong here, do you not feel by not warning anyone of the fact that audi-sport was going off line and changing you have lost a lot of members.

    7 or 14 will surfice if your that childish, personally though i prefered the old Audi-sport and if it wasnt broken why try to fix it.

    thats a bit harsh to be fair.

    in defense, the old site did look a bit bum and dated. However, i'd agree that it was easier to see older new posts. Perhaps re-instate the function to see all new posts in xx hours or xx days?

    I must say - I think I preferred the layout of the old site, but hey - this thing is free and you guys do all your stuff for nothing, so we'll just get used to it.

    Keep it up, and thanks :)

    Cheers outlore, bainsyboy, the reason there was no warning was because it suddenly broke and couldnt be fixed.

    And yes, you are totally wrong, we have have 10 new registered members in the last 3 days.

    If you click NEW POSTS on the NAV BAR at the top, it will give you the posts with new replies in, however old. It called "active topics"

    I suggest you ask questions in the site suggestions/helpline forum about the new forum FIRST before jumping and and questioning the HARD WORK AND EFFORT we have put in to keep this running

    Prefer the new format - good work.
    It is a bit slow on dial up at home though.

    I must admit that i was a bit worried when the site went down, I thought that work had clamped down on me.

    I like the new look, it'll take a bit of getting used to but it looks a lot more up to date and there seems to be several new forums created from members suggestions which i'm sure will add to the quality of the site

    Keep up the good work guys

    Mike

    Olly_K Fair comment didnt mean any offence but look at it this way im getting burned down in flames BUT while im burning you can see what others think on the new look.

    brainsyboy I had the same knee jerk reaction, though wtf have they done to the original ASNet? I think it was shock as I thought the site was gone for good as I was using an old bookmark.

    Now I see the site is looking a lot better but I'm still getting used to the new way of navigating around. I suppose a change is as good as holiday,
    so in fairness it is somewhat better imo.

    Some of us are stuck on dial up because of d@mn fibre optic TPON lines that won't take braodband. Grrr. You can turn of avatars & signatures in options and that speeds up the site loads.

    TDI cheers mate, personally i think ive had a very lucky day, not sure if the other post was a wind up as after reading loads of stuff they all say you will definately get upto 6 points but the ban will be down to the judge
